‘Saturday Night Live’ Recap: Ariana Grande Shines As Host And Musical Guest
Singer and actress Ariana Grande pulled off a remarkable job as both host and musical guest on last night’s Saturday Night Live.
ARIANA GRANDE HOSTS ‘SNL’
Grande kicked off the night with a funny cold open trying to find her first adult “scandal.” She pairs it with her rendition of “Dangerous Woman” and “Be Alright.” Grande was able to showcase her vocal potential and snag a few laughs. She poked fun of her age and stunned in a black one piece.
The singer was also able to shine in her skits too. She killed her impersonation of Jennifer Lawerence in a blond wig and white gown during the night’s “Celebrity Family Feud.” Grande was able to perfect Lawrence’s deeper voice and held her own in the skit among the other SNL actors like Kenan Thompson as Steve Harvey and Jay Pharaoh as Idris Elba.
Grande also starred in the funny skit called “This Is Not a Feminist Song” that pokes fun at songs not centered about feminism. The song was catchy enough on its own but paired well with the dance moves from Aidy Bryant, Cecily Strong and Leslie Jones.
Grande also brought her acting chops and impersonation skills during the skit “Tidal.” She played an intern who had to impersonate the company’s biggest artists from Britney Spears, Celine Dion, Rihanna and Shakira. The skit first made its debut with Bruno Mars saving Pandora on a previous show but Grande made it fresh and new.
